Re: [HD] Maybe this means more HD will follow...

Turner Classic Movies HD. Now that would be the biggest possible waste of space.

Whoops - I gave you a thumbsup but then realized that I misread your post.

I disagree. I would LOVE to *finally* have TCM in HD!

From what I've read they don't even show anything in HD on TMC.

The signal is still 1080i which would give a clearer picture than the SD

That is why we need it in HD! They show the classics, they deserve the best quality signal possible.

According to the channel PDF, FiOS states that TV GUIDE HD will be availiable in all markets in February. So I think def by March 1st, bc it may be contractual? Why would they say that if it wasn't true?

Some may not like this channel addition, but it is better then what they could add.

Anyway. I still state that , if they say they will add this channel in HD in all markets in Feb on a channel PDF that lists all channels in every package , it will be so? Correct?

John,

I agree that TCM HD would be great bc it's 1080. I was watching Ben Hur last night. Great movie, but in HD, ESP 1080, it would've been much much better.

Possibly compared to the quality of BBC America and BBC America HD. when we first got the channel in HD, I was amazed bc it was In 1080. It was a night and day comparison.

I'd gladly take TCM HD over TRU-TV. Aside from NCAA what else does tru-tv show? Maybe they should consider a rotate of some of these HD channels. NFL net - it can go and bring in MLB Net. I don't blame other cable ops. from dumping channels that aren't producing.

I disagree strongly. I realize that nothing on TCM is actually in HD and that it's all upconverted, and this offends purists. Sure, it could look better if it were true HD like the European version of the channel with enormous bandwidth, but I'll take what I can get.

I had TCM HD when I had Cablevision. It looked very nice. It's the only thing I miss about Cablevision (besides the 24-hour customer service staffed by actual local people with actual local accents, but I never used that much anyway).
